    Promised Lands's review

    Published: 2013-11-18, by Peter Warrior.

    A witty reinterpretation of the match-3 genre

    • Original and witty
    • Little demanding, yet very challenging
    • It needs severe improvement in several areas

    "Paradise has no borders"

    Let me tell you something. Promised Lands is a game that landed from nowhere and we haven't ever seen it advertised or otherwise promoted. It's one of those little app jewels, likely born in a wet and dark garage, that can move any player with a beating heart.

    Said so, in the end Promised Lands is a match three of a kind game, but it isn't. You create evolved tiles by placing two of a kind together. This new tiles can evolve several times by this method, even joining three or more at a time if we want to free single spaces left behind by poor choices. The most advanced tiles allow to create special forests or farms that give mana and other resources away.

    This game can be eternally enjoyed for free, though you'll have to upgrade it if you want to get rid of ads or if you want to summon a bulldozer to undo a movement or destroy a badly placed tile. In conclusion, a great indie game even in this its early stage of development.
